The best way of getting great DOS windows is to install Windows 3.1 and to use 
Windows 3.1 DOS boxes. They are the most compatible DOS boxes I have seen, and 
performance is better under Windows 3.1 DOS boxes than under plain VPC DOS. For 
example, when I run a data-intensive Clipper application under a DOS box the 
run time is cut in half. 

Advanced tip: By using a bitmap font editor you can change the DOSAPP.FON, 
which is used by the DOS boxes. By tweaking DOSAPP.INI you can change the way 
Windows 3.1 positions DOS boxes.
